Public Service Announcement –Have Your Say on Proposed Tobacco and Vapour Products Control Regulations

Public Service Announcement

Yellowknife — December 22, 2021

The Department of Health and Social Services is seeking feedback on the proposed Tobacco and Vapour Products Control Regulations, to strengthen the protection of residents, by limiting the sale of flavoured vapour products. Input received from public and stakeholder engagement in 2020 has helped inform the development of these proposed regulations.

The Tobacco and Vapour Products Control Act protects residents’ health by regulating where and how vaping products can be accessed, and by placing restrictions on the display and advertising of vaping products in the NWT, anywhere children and youth may have access.

 

Please send your feedback to dhssregs_feedback@gov.nt.ca  by January 22, 2022.
